This is an awesome Weight Watchers recipe because it is packed with lean protein. We all know that getting those protein levels up means more energy, staying full longer, and less chances for unnecessary snacking.
- Cook the rice the day before and refrigerate over night
- We have found that fried rice is more flavorful the next day
- We love to eat the leftovers in corn tortillas for breakfast tacos, or rolled up into burritos.
- Low sodium soy sauce: You can use coconut aminos, soy sauce, or Tamari
- Dry mustard
- Coconut oil: Or any other minimally processed oil
- Onion: I use red onion a lot because it’s anti-inflammatory, but you can use any type of onion
- Garlic: Fresh is definitely best!
- Ginger: Again, fresh is best
- Bell peppers: Whichever color you like best
- Peas and carrots: I use a frozen bag
- Sausage: Poultry sausage is best, and we love the chicken and apple flavor
- Turkey Bacon: Or regular bacon–your call! If using regular bacon, I like to get center cut or trim the fat from it. Regular pork bacon should be cooked before you add it.
- Eggs: I’ve also used egg substitute in this recipe, and I’ve made it without eggs
- Rice: I’ve used both brown rice and white rice, both have nutritional benefits and both are so easy to make in the Instant Pot! This recipe cooks so much easier when you make your rice the day before–if you want it now, no worries–it’s delicious either way!
Time needed: 40 minutes.

- Make your sauce
Mix Tamari or low sodium soy sauce with the dry mustard. Set aside.
Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a large skillet or wok. Add onions, garlic, ginger, bell pepper, and poultry sausage and sauté for 3-5 minutes.
- Add the extras
Add diced bacon and peas and carrots. Cook for 3-5 minutes. If you want to cook the eggs in the pan, move the contents of the pan to one side and add the eggs to the other side and cook until scrambled, stirring frequently.
- Add rice
Add the cooked brown rice or white rice the the pan.
- Add your sauce
Pour sauce mixture over rice and gently stir to combine.

If you are cooking your eggs separately, add them in now. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until thoroughly heated through, stirring often.
